Released in 1990, MC Hammer's diamond certified third studio effort, Please Hammer Don't Hurt 'Em, is one of the best-selling rap albums of all time with sales of more than 10 million copies in the U.S. alone. It proved once and for all that rap music was no longer just a specialty niche genre, but had the crossover potential to be a commercial juggernaut. The album rocketed to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 thanks to its Grammy-winning smash "U Can't Touch This," and its famous "Super Freak" sample. This standard weight vinyl is being reissued in celebration of Capitol Records' 75th anniversary. Stop...Hammer time!
